49ers Hosting OLBs Erik Walden & Hau’oli Kikaha For Visits

Adam Schefter reports that the 49ers are bringing free agent OLBs Erik Walden and Hau’oli Kikaha for a visit on Monday.

Walden, 32, is a former sixth-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2008. He lasted just a few months in Dallas before he was waived at the start of the 2008 season and later claimed off of waivers by the Chiefs.

Walden eventually ended up in Miami where he played two seasons before the Packers signed him to a contract in 2010. After three years in Green Bay, Walden departed for a four-year, $16,000,000 contract with the Colts.

The Seahawks signed Walden to a contract last month before placing him on injured reserve coming out of the preseason and later released with a settlement.

In 2017, Walden appeared in all 16 games for the Titans and recorded 36 tackles, four sacks, and a fumble recovery.

Kikaha, 26, is a former second-round pick of the Saints back in 2015. He was in the final year of his four-year, $5.266 million contract that included $3.199 million guaranteed and set to make a base salary of for the 2018 season when the Saints cut him loose coming out of the preseason.

In 2017, Kikaha appeared in 12 games for the Saints and recorded 10 tackles, four sacks and a pass defense.
